    Pros

    Free weekly lunches, intelligent, inspired and genuine people, room for growth, interesting client work, positive culture- and a hard-working Culture Team, monthly agency-sponsored events, approachable upper management, innovative solutions, clear and transparent communication, cross-office collaboration. Upper management truly values to success of not only the agency, but of the individuals who make this place a Powerhouse. The people here are truly what make AMP as special as it is. Ask questions, and show initiative- you can learn tools here to make you a valuable and contributing member of the company. You can even find the CEO- Gary, interacting with even the entry level associates here. If you leave the attitude at the door and exhibit a "can-do" attitude, you will be very successful at AMP.

    Cons

    Parent company, Advantage Solutions, can sometimes be difficult to work with. Over-complicating certain processes can cause things to trickle down and negatively impact AMP Agency. They do not always understand the Agency culture, which can affect the overall atmosphere and efficiency at AMP.

    Advice to Management

    Push back on Advantage and demand faster response time on their end. Continue to support your own- and provide constructive guidance and training to foster a positive and supportive community within AMP. Keep up the good work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at AMP Agency (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pleasant, although my experience with HR was less than spectacular. I was contacted by one of the SVPs of recruiting after having been referred by a few current employees. Though scheduling an interview was simple enough, her attitude made it seem as though she had better things to do. The day of the interview went well - I met with four members of the hiring team, including the hiring manager, and all seemed to take an interest in getting to know me beyond my skills. I then had what felt like a pleasant follow-up with another HR representative, though it was a junior member of the department. She instructed me to follow up the week after, especially since, in her words, the CEO had to approve hiring of the position first. Odd that they'd conduct a search without having a vacancy first. I checked back the next week, and the following week, and then two weeks after that, only for my emails to go ignored. I later found out from one of my connections that the HR representative had left the company. Overall, while the hiring team seemed great, HR communicated very poorly - if I'm dedicating time to apply, I would appreciate even a one-line email informing me that they'd chosen someone else. It was unprofessional to say the least.
